Coat of Arms – Armas

The “Nobleza Executoriada de Navarra” said that the Goyeneche brought the arms of the Baztan Valley, which are checkered squares of silver and black.  In effect, these are the general arms of the Goyeneche, squares of silver and black, but only twenty pieces, instead of the twenty-five contained the arms of the Baztan Valley.

The Counts of Guaqui show their arms in this way as well.

There are also branches of the Goyeneche who have this other coat of arms:  A checker of thirty pieces of “gules” and silver, and bordered with this metal.
